"One of the most important aspects about family traditions - rituals
that families continue to do year after year - is that traditions have
symbols and families need symbols. You bring out the old glass, you
sing the old songs, you say the same prayer, you wear a certain
outfit, you set the table a certain way."

~ Dr. Stephen J. Wolin
